Pierre Joseph Landry: Patriot, Planter, Sculptor

$19.95

 

This 59-page catalog accompanied the first exhibition to focus on the works of Pierre Joseph Landry presented from October 16, 2015 to March 20, 2016. Born in France, Landry immigrated to Louisiana at the age of 15. He became a military officer under Andrew Jackson during the war of 1812, and subsequently became a successful sugar planter. Stricken by illness at the age of 63, he began carving wood sculptures with biblical, allegorical and historical subjects. The publication was made possible, in part, to the Louisiana State Museum.
